    Editable datatable using suggestionbox

    Hai-Yun Du Newbie

      I would like to put input fields inside a datatable. The datatable is bound to an PersonLevel entity list. The input fields use rich:suggestionbox and when a value is selected it should return a Level entity that will be bound to the PersonLevel.level property. That's how it should work in theory, but it doesn't (type mismatch error). If I don't put in the a4j:support for selecting the suggestionbox it overwrites the Level.name property which is not the desired behaviour. What is the proper way of implementing this?




      <rich:dataTable var="_personLevel" value="#{personHome.personLevelsList}">
           <rich:column>
                <h:inputText id="levelInput" value="#{_personLevel.level.name}"/>
                <h:graphicImage value="/img/dropdown.png" onclick="#{rich:component('levelSuggestion')}.callSuggestion(true)"/>
                <rich:suggestionbox id="levelSuggestion" for="levelInput" fetchValue="#{_level.name}"
                     var="_level" suggestionAction="#{levelLookup.lookup}">
                     <a4j:support event="onselect">
                          <f:setPropertyActionListener target="#{_personLevel.level}" value="_level"/> 
                     </a4j:support>
                     <h:column>
                          <h:outputText value="#{_level.name}"/>
                     </h:column>
                </rich:suggestionbox>
           </rich:column>
      </rich:dataTable> 




      @Entity
      public class PersonLevel {
           private int id;
           private Level level;
      ...
      }
      
      @Entity
      public class Level {
           private int level;
           private String name;
      }
